Local Government Week will be held from Monday, 31 July to Sunday, 6 August, with this year’s theme - ‘Discovery, Diversity, Democracy’ – promoting Council working with the community to create a strong, cohesive and vibrant Shire. On Thursday, 3 August from 10:00-11:00am there will be a tour of the Gunnedah Shire Library and a free morning tea. Come along and join the Library staff to celebrate this week.
On Wednesday afternoons at 3:30pm, the Library hosts Junior Brain Games for school-aged children – there’s storytelling and book discussion, some fun brain games - such as spot the difference, find the objects, join the dots and a handicraft to take home. There’s a limit of 10 children per session so please phone 6740 2190 to book a place for your child.
Adults have their chance at grown up fun with Brain Training at the Library, a program that was short listed for the Local Government Excellence Awards! There are two sessions on Monday, one at 10:30am and the other at 3:30pm, each lasting an hour. Give your brain a good workout with activities targeting such skills as memory, fine motor skills, number skills, vocabulary, pattern recognition, and non-dominant hand movement! It’s great fun, it’s free, and there’s plenty of time for networking with the other participants before and after the session. All materials are provided and information on brain health or cyber safety is presented each week.
Plenty of new books have been added to the collection this week, including The Ruby Red Trilogy- Ruby Red,Sapphire Blue and Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier. Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD, Going Paleo by Pete Evans, and The Clever Guts Diet by Dr Michael Mosley.
We hope to see you soon at the library!
